Tour de Yorkshire reveals podium jerseys

Three podium jerseys, designed by Milltag, are revealed for the Tour de Yorkshire, with a fourth 'groundbreaking' jersey to be announced on Thursday

The leader of the Tour de Yorkshire will wear a light blue and yellow jersey, sponsored by Welcome to Yorkshire, organisers have revealed.

The tour's Twitter page released the designs of the leader's, mountains and sprint jerseys to the world around midday on Wednesday, with a fourth to be announced on Thursday.

Designed by Milltag's Ed Cowburn, all three jerseys feature the Tour de Yorkshire's recognisable yellow 'Y' insignia, with the leader set to ride in a blue and yellow outfit.

The king of the mountains jersey, worn by the rider who accumulates the most points at the top of the route's climbs, is a shade of magenta, while the leading sprinter will wear green.
